Artist's Description


Seen 2050 times as of 11/3/13, and favorited 37 times (thank you!)

This image was taken during an engine run test of the Historical Flight Foundation’s classic Eastern Airlines DC-7B aircraft at Opalocka Airport in Miami Florida.

This image was featured on the Smithsonian’s Air&Space magazine site in April, 2010.

This is a restored EAL DC-7B with its original Eastern Airlines markings. The aircraft was first delivered to Eastern Airlines in 1958. This plane currently resides at Opalocka airport in Miami, Florida, and has been approved by the FAA to resume passenger service; this aircraft represents the only U.S. based, four engine, passenger prop-liner in operation today.

This aircraft was also featured in the new TV series “PanAm” where one side was painted with Pan American World Airways livery for the show- the scene was depicting Cuban evacuees fleeing Havana (actually filmed right here at OpaLocka airport).

Please see my other images of this marvelous aircraft:

This image was taken after sunset. The light source is from a security spotlight mounted on a nearby hangar. The total exposure time on this image is over 1 minute.)
